I think you will find more times than not for probably the majority, I know I'm reaching, record Vox with Compression. There are a lot of hi end boxes designed to do just that. That being said, I would not record with it unless I had to. I almost always use compression on Vox, but I use it as an Insert in PT HD. If I need to free up that compressor, then I'll bounce the track with compression and hide the original track. I can always come back to it later if I want to change something. This frees me up from using too many Plug-in compressors, which is the area of plugins that I feel have not gotten very close to hardware. I think they have nailed EQ and would not waist my money on hardware EQ, its just not justifiable to me. Ok guys, I said to me, so don't get in frenzy...
